At Progressive Women’s Healthcare we are dedicated to addressing your incontinence concerns. Stress Urinary Incontinence is defined by urinary leakage when you laugh, cough, sneeze, or exercise. 1 out of every 3 patients that walk through our door are dealing with this aggravating and embarrassing problem. After referring approximately 300 patients annually for corrective surgery, Dr. Peterson sought out to find a better option for her patients. For 3 years now, Dr. Peterson and Sarah King have been using intravaginal TENS units manufactured by Incontrol Medical to cure incontinence. When muscle stimulation is delivered intravaginally, not only does it strengthen the pelvic floor muscle, but also calms the nerves that lead to feelings of urinary urgency. Depending on the severity and type of incontinence will determine which device is right for you and how often you will need to use it. After an initial consultation, we will have a better idea if this treatment option is best suited for you. Sometimes we do prefer our patients to undergo Urodynamic Testing. Urodynamic Testing allows us to determine the type of incontinence a patient has and the severity of it. This will ensure that we choose the best treatment option the first time. With use of these devices we have succeeded in curing about 90% of our patients incontinence without having to have invasive surgery. In healthcare it is rare to find one thing that works for most people. Using Incontrol Medical devices has been one of the best things we have been able to offer our patients. Seeing our patients get out of pads and not have to rearrange their life around where the closest bathroom is has been truly rewarding.
